a little scare for thanksgiving

yesterday i got to sleep in a little before getting up to fix the sides i was taking to micah's mom's for thanksgiving. i really needed it b/c i hadn't been sleeping well the last few nights. i got up, cooked my few things, got my shower, helped get the boys all ready, was actually just putting the last spray on my hair...when i felt it. and i knew i wasn't leaking b/c i have c-section babies. so i checked and sure enough i was bleeding. i was startled only b/c i had never had it with a gush feeling before. i felt like everything else was probably normal. but i called the doc anyway and of course it was lay down and put your feet up. and i didn't want to go do that at my in law's house with it being packed to the gills with folks, so i just sent micah and the boys and the food. i told him i'd come later if i felt a little better. so they walk out the door, i absolutely SOB and then got in the recliner for some good ole Top Chef marathon. so for actual lunch, we didn't really have anything here, so i ate some stove top. thankfully there was plenty for micah to bring me home a plate (or a lunch plate and a desert plate) so i could eat REAL thanksgiving about 3pm.

the rest of the day i just sat in the recliner and rested. nothing else happened, just got lighter as the day went on. i was a little worried when i would get up last night to potty, but everything was ok. today i have felt fine and nothing is happening today. just an early pregnancy thing.

we did get out a little tonight and bought a new tree. it's one of those prelit skinny trees. it took a little bit to shape it, but i am actually glad i don't have this ginormous tree taking up a quarter of my living room!! i got it up and decorated and got the little trees that i put in luke and seth's rooms done. micah got our bathroom floor done. we just need to put the molding back down and it will be completely done. tomorrow, as long as i feel well, i will attempt a little light shopping b/c tis the season...

the next couple of weeks will be busy. next week we have our first dentist trip with the boys (say a prayer for that b/c it will NOT go well, i can assure you!), luke has school pictures. the next week i have a doctor's appointment and micah is going to put down the tiles in the other bathroom (b/c i'm OCD and the bathrooms have to match). the following week is luke's last week of school, his holiday program at school and our anniversary. the next week is free before we leave for dothan for a few days for Christmas. but i will definitely need that free week. i will definitely be glad for the new year and a little slowing down...except that i need to start painting my living room and halls...but maybe if i'm sweet, mimi (my stepmom) will come help me.

but to reiterate...EVERYTHING IS OK!!
